Team SASS: NJ Proposes 5-round limit on magazines

Recommended Posts

New Jersey wants to limit law-abiding gun owners to 5 round magazines! A 1911 doesn't even have a 5 round mag! If you live in NJ please contact our legislators and let them know that this is unacceptable! And even if you don't live in NJ the added voices won't hurt. Please call and fax. We need to act quick on this because I believe this goes to the floor this coming week.

Basically attempting to outlaw semi-auto pistols without banning them.

 

Get hold of a pro-civil rights legislator and have him amend it so that LEOs are not exempt. He can cite the ongoing manhunt in CA for doing that.

At the Maryland hearings, one of the folks made mention of that fact during his testimony about the proposed 10 round limit. He said that he was entitled to provide the same level of protection to his family that the Legislators where being provided bt the State Police. There were a few uncomfortable looks from members of the panel.

Good job to whoever did that. We need to beat these elitist capons up about their exceptions and making us second or third class citizens. At least they had the grace to look uncomfortable.

 

I wish we could have seen the faces of this group while Mr. Stevens spoke:

Thank you for posting this. It is the first I have seen of Mr. Stevens testimony.

I highly commend him for his words and actions. :FlagAm:

Why is it this type of video can't go viral on the web? It seems only the anti-gun videos do.

Thanks, Cemetery. I hadn't forgotten about those. Do all of these go up for vote this week, or just the 5 round mag bill?

 

...I've been calling about these so frequently that the folks that answer the phones at both the Senate Majority Office and the Assembly Majority Office recognize my voice.

Folks, I write this from PRNY, where we just got dispossessed of many of our guns in an opening day salvo in the dark of night.

I'm butt-hurt over my custom 10-22 TARGET RIFLE which has been declared an assault rifle owing to a heavy, wood, thumbhole stock. I built that tack driver and now NYS says I can't have it? WHY? it isn't even a handy squirrel gun. It is a nose' heavy, steel, bull barrelled bench gun. But the ignorant whores in the capitol see liberal votes. LIKE IN NEW JERSEY. we hav a Gov. who wants to live in DC...... NYS has alreaady probably destroyed Remington Arms. How many more JOBS will they drive away? How many good workers? I pity the HR man who has to recruit in NY or NJ. Who would want to live there? FLORIDA is looking better all the time, or maybe Arizona......

After nearly 8 hours and 300+ people speaking in opposition every single of the bills posted above were released. Every word of oposition fell on deaf ears. Every legislator that voted in favor of these bills clearly had their mind made up before the hearing, and nothing that was said made any difference. Now we move on to the Senate. The fact that these all passed Assembly is troublesome - that measn they are that much closer to being a law, and stand a greater chance of becoming one.

Ok here is one for ya....

Could magazine be defined in such a way to include revolver cylinders?

Magazines can be fixed or detachable, tubular or rotary and so forth.

We are primed to be beaten by bureaucrats with their semantics and technicalities if we allow them.

It didn't pass the Assembley yet, the Assembly vote will happen later this month.......

 

Yes, it was a kangaroo court if I ever saw one.

I've wondered that myself, but the magazine issue is realted strictly to semiautomatic firearms at this time. Revolvers (DA and SA) and lever guns are off the table. ...at this time. However, I have to wonder if magazine fed bolt rifles are included in the magazine restrictions. I believe they are since they use a detachable box magazine. Fixed tubular magazines are only issue at this time when they are on a semiautomatic rifle. ANd at this time the magazine limitiation is still being presented as 10 rounds. ...becasue our current limit of 15 was so dangerous.

Thanks for that, Cemetery. But truth be told after yesterday I have little hope that any of these bills will be stopped at the Assembly level. They are all very proud of themselves and want to see their "hard work" pushed through.

FYI - If the Legislator is not in your District. ie Richard Cody about 5 round magazines - DO NOT USE THE LEGISLATIVE EMAIL FORM to contact them. Why? Because the Legislator is not within your zip code - the email will not go through

Browse them up for their other source to send emails

Check the news releases these days, Christie is hanging out with any top level Democrat he can find. (With Michelle the latest). He is a prime Repubicrat!! There won't be any 2nd amend help from him. He wants to be the next POTUS.
